Usability Professionals' Association (UPA)

The Usability Professionals' Association (UPA) was founded in 1991 "so that a growing community of usability professionals could exchange ideas, share success stories, build skills, and improve evaluation methodologies."

UPA organizes the annual UPA Conference and publishes the User Experience magazine and the Journal of Usability Studies (JUS).

Since , UPA also publishes the newsletter The UPA Voice three times a year. All issues are available online at http://www.usabilityprofessionals.org/upa_publications/upa_voice/.
